Storms increase later today

Good Wednesday to one and all. A weak cold front is working toward the Commonwealth, bringing an increase in showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms later this evening into tonight could be on the strong side.

Winds are gusty ahead of this front today, with highs heading into the upper 70s to low 80s. Some scattered storms will be possible this afternoon, but the bulk of the action arrives later this evening into tonight. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook rom the SPC for today:

Here’s the outlook for Thursday:

Damaging winds and large hail will be the primary threats for any of the storms that can go severe.

The same front responsible for the storms then slows down on top of us into Friday, with the potential for a few waves of showers and storms rolling eastward into Kentucky.

That introduces us to some very warm and humid air for the weekend. Highs will run deep into the 80s as we get ready for another cold front to move our way by late Mother’s Day into Monday. That may touch off another round of some big boomers.

I have you all set to track today’s stormy weather:
